Meet Andrew and share his Unloader Moment

A trained physiotherapist, Andrew is an experienced user of the Unloader One. He discusses the initial pain experienced and the impact this had on his mobility before describing his Unloader Moment and the benefits experienced from wearing the brace.

Andrew is one of eight participants in a study into the ‘Unloader Moment’ carried out by Dr Sheila Strover. Dr Strover had been told about the moment a patient first wears the Unloader One and that their face lights up with amazement due to the pain reduction. She was interested to see this for herself and challenged Össur to demonstrate the knee brace in action. A series of eight videos have been published on which show the participants experiencing their own ‘Unloader Moment’ with the brace.

We invite you to share in the ‘Unloader Moment’ on Facebook and twitter using #unloadermoment to share your story and view others.
